Subject: A mid-engine plane....
Interesting arrangement,the engine was mounted
behind the pilot.The propeller was driven via
a gearbox/driveshaft.

I would be dead. As a kid I always wanted to be a pilot. But because I was color blind I never qualified. Good thing. If I hadn't flunked out of flight school I would surely have killed myself. There is just too much detail to keep your mind on to fly safely. Too easy to forget something.

During the second world war my father worked for Bell aircraft. He ran a division wher he supervised 89 women and the plane they built was the p 39. This is where he met my mother. Seeing this film was the first time I was able to see moving pictires fo the p39. Thank you with all my heart. If their was a higher rating than 5 I would surley give it.
